CELTIC chief executive Peter Lawwell will return to the SPFL board for the new season.

The Hoops supremo replaces Ibrox managing director Stewart Robertson who is stepping down from the position.

St Johnstone chairman Steve Brown is also set to be added to the SPFL management team and he and Lawwell will join Hamilton Accies’ Les Gray as representatives of the Premiership.

Tomorrow’s AGM will see the changes ratified, according to a BBC report. There will also be decisions made on who represents the Championship with Ross McArthur (Dunfermline), Ewen Cameron (Alloa) and Ross Morrison (Inverness Caley Thistle) competing for two spots.

Motherwell’s Alan Burrows has also departed and he tweeted: “I have thought long and hard about it. I’m happy to stand back and let others get involved.

“The board needs a degree of continuity, particularly with the challenges of Covid-19 still far from over, and I am glad some of my colleagues have once again put themselves forward for re-election.”

Clyde’s Gordon Thomson and Brechin City’s Ken Ferguson will stand for Leagues One and Two.

Along with those representing clubs, the board will also feature cheif executive Neil Doncaster, chairman Murdoch MacLennan and non-executive director Karyn McCluskey.
